Somehow hackers got the password to my yahoo email account - this morning several messages were sent from it, that contained links to a page that downloads malware to your machine. Yahoo also notified me that in the past 12 hours my account was accessed from Japan and Poland.
Of course my first action was to change my yahoo password, security questions, and other security features. However I'm concerned about collateral damage - one of my other email addresses was linked to this account (yahoo requires you to have a secondary email address), and I use my yahoo ID for a few other web sites. Also, my yahoo inbox contained a number of confirmation emails from web purchases I've made over the years using this account.
So, my question for this group is, besides changing my password and other security features, what else should I do to contain the damage? Do I need to be concerned about the other information that was probably taken from my account, or this a don't-care? Is there anything hackers could to with the purchase confirmations and other emails?
Thanks in advance,
